The IMEX Group has today confirmed that it has secured new dates for IMEX in Frankfurt 2022, with the 20th anniversary of the tradeshow now set for May 31 to June 2.
In a press release, the IMEX Group stated that the postponement was due to the “increase in omicron cases across Europe and around the world”, as well as the “current regulatory uncertainty”.
IMEX CEO Carina Bauer explained: “Everyone in our industry can see the current situation in Europe and knows that, with tradeshows depending on such long lead times, it doesn’t support a show in April. We strongly believe that a late May edition of IMEX in Frankfurt will allow everyone to move ahead and plan with certainty and confidence.
“Having recently come off a highly successful IMEX America, we’re completely focused on building a strong return for IMEX in Frankfurt and we’re also keenly aware of how much our industry needs IMEX to bring everyone together and prove that business regeneration and good lead flow is not only viable but closer than some may think.”
In addition to the tradeshow, IMEX Frankfurt with feature a dedicated day of tailored education on May 30 for specialist groups such as corporate, association and agency buyers.
Registration for IMEX in Frankfurt will go live in the week commencing January 17.
